Hi - Yesterday, bought a secondhand DJI Phantom 3, waiting for it to be delivered! Today joined Grey Arrows. This afternoon spent time swatting and getting my CAA Flyer ID. All this prior to receiving the drone, maybe it’s all the wrong way around, but at 76 years of age, there is no time like the present. Thank you all for letting a Grey Nomad join your group, look forward to meeting some of the members in the future! - Colin
Hi @Gizmek and welcome to Grey Arrows
Loved my phantom 3, it’s where it all started for me, rock solid drone
